Great!

I love this recipe and make it often. Not only do I make it for dinner for a group, I make it just for myself because it makes a great left over.

pretty good

I deleted a few things due to the taste level of my family and this was pretty good... probably won't be eaten too often in my house...

Good for the Family

This recipe is good. My family doesn't like pimentos or poblano peppers so I added diced chicken instead.

- Brooke Schmidt from Macon, MO

ok

Recipe was chosen because of all the positive reviews. I followed the recipe but did omit the poblano pepper. i added chicken breast. I found this recipe to be ok, just nothing special. Maybe if I had added the pepper it may have be more flavorful. My family just dont like peppers.
